homework sucks and should be banned because some kids have sports after school
Blazzered

Con

I'll accept this debate.
Okay so you say homework should be banned because of after school activities such as sports, however the problem is sports are not as important as education. Homework helps further your education and helps your teachers figure out what you know. Extra school activities simply are not as important as school work and school grades. Core classes are more important, and good grades for those classes are required for graduation.

@DarkSword that is understandable, however it does depend on the classes and the teacher. I've had years where I have had tons of homework and I have had years when I have had barley any homework.

@Blazzered I agree it should not be banned, cut down is what I mean.

@DarkSword I can see what you mean, as someone who is currently in high school, however homework shouldn't be banned just because it's annoying to the students or because students don't like it. Homework is important, education is important. Sports and other activities are not as important.

I agree with Pro some of the way because a lot of children are involved with after school activity and having to go through 8 hours of school plus another 2 hours of homework is quite annoying. But, in saying that, I also agree with Con, homework is important in that it helps teachers get a better understanding of what you know. Personally I think teachers should definitely ease up a bit on the amount of homework they give out, especially when they know the majority of people do after school activities.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited 1 round, but Con also forfeited 1 round, so they tie for conduct. I understood both of them pretty well, so they tie for spelling and grammar. Pro made the valid argument that some kids have sports after school, which takes up time to do homework, which is true. Con, however, also made a valid argument - that homework helps your teachers figure out what you know, which is also true. Pro used a true argument against homework, and Con used a true argument for homework. So, they tie for convincing arguments. Neither of them used any sources, so they tie for reliable sources.

Reasons for voting decision: Despite the FF's, PRO technically has the BOP, and as neither side presented arguments, Con wins on a technicality.
